SLU 101 - Summer Orientation

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to SLU this summer at SLU 101. During this two-day orientation, you’ll meet fellow members of your incoming class, meet with your academic advisor and faculty from your College or School, enroll in fall courses, stay the night in a freshman residence hall, learn about campus resources, get all of your questions answered from upperclass student leaders, and visit with a sampling of our many offices and organizations.

Because we provide a great deal of information relevant to your academic success and register you for your fall semester classes, it is expected that all new freshmen will participate in this program.

Students are also required to complete a Foreign Language skills assessment prior to SLU 101. Click here for more information.

Bring your laptop and other devices to Orientation! Information Technology Services will be available for students to receive assistance configuring their devices to the University wireless network and residential hall network. Avoid the rush and delay of connecting to the University Network during Fall Welcome and take advantage of this opportunity by bringing your laptop or other device to campus during SLU 101.
